*SUNDAY SCHOOL HYMN*

*1.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
O how I love Thee well,
I am happy, it makes me glad
To rejoice at Thy birth.

*2.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day, Thy friendship suits me well,
Both young and old will sing Thy song,
We long for Sunday School.

*3.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Christ was Thy first teacher,
The Holy Spirit, great teacher,
Does manifest in thee.

*4.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
This testimony is sure,
That God, the Father Almighty,
Poured His blessing on Thee.

*5.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
Though the sun be so bright,
Or if the clouds black with rain,
I’ll be in Sunday School.

*6.* O Sunday School, on the Lord’s day,
I rejoice to see Thee,
Will thou pass over me today?
Without my being blest?

INTRODUCTION:
Ingratitude negates the will of God (1Thessalonians 5:18). It is a sign of backsliding. Though people are ungrateful for various reasons, we must not be ingrates because of its attendant dangers (Romans 1:21-22).

LESSON OUTLINES
1. Reasons for ingratitude
2. Dangers of ingratitude

REASONS FOR INGRATITUDE
The primary reason for ingratitude is sin which is as a result of spiritual blindness (Isaiah 29:16; Romans 1:21-22,28). Other reasons include:
1. Failure to take account of what God has done (Psalm 103:1-3).
2. Ignorance, foolishness and slowness of heart (Luke 17:17; 24:25; Deuteronomy 32:6).
3. Spiritual immaturity and insensitivity (Luke 24:13-16, Psalm 106:7).
4. Keeping of bad company (1Corinthians 15:33).
5. Pride, as in the case of Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4:22-25,30-31).

DANGERS OF INGRATITUDE
Anyone with an attitude of ingratitude stands the risk of losing his/her blessings, salvation and ultimately Heaven (2Samuel 6:20-23, Luke 12:16-21). Ingratitude may be regarded as an act of wickedness. Open Heaven 16 September 2018

Anyone who is ungrateful to God is attracting a curse to himself (Proverbs 3:33) or limiting his/her blessings. Ingratitude is blocking the greater blessings of many believers today (Luke 17:17-19). Inability to access the presence of God (Psalm 100:3-4) and turning into an enemy of God (Romans 1:21,28, Numbers 14:2-4,11-12) are other dangers of ingratitude. Open Heaven 17 September 2018

CONCLUSION
Repent and return to God with a heart of thanksgiving. Make thanksgiving a lifestyle.

QUESTIONS
1. Why are people ungrateful?
